Gopeng MP, state rep nabbed for wearing yellow

Police continued with their nationwide crackdown on Bersih 2.0 supporters, arresting those clad in yellow, including two elected representatives from PKR in Perak. NONEGopeng MP Dr Lee Boon Chye (centre in photo) and Simpang Pulai state assemblyperson Chan Ming Kai and two PKR members were arrested at the Gunung Rapat morning market in Ipoh while meeting voters this morning, for being in yellow clothes. Lee said he was detained soon after his arrival at the market, around 9am.

He was handcuffed and taken to the Ipoh police district headquarters. "I did not wear a Bersih T-shirt, it was a T-shirt, but in yellow colour.

"I just arrived at the market and started to shake hands with voters, then they arrested me," he said when contacted, adding that he did not distribute leaflets, nor did he have a banner at that time. Police told Lee that he was arrested under the Police Act to prevent an illegal assembly. [More to follow]
